AutoRPM is a program that can do any combination of the following: mirror RPMs from an FTP site, keep installed RPMs consistent with an FTP site or local directory and keep installed RPMs in a cluster or network of systems consistent. It is highly flexible and contains a fully command-line driven interactive install mode (for installing RPMs from the queue or for installing RPMs from your system interactively). It also handles recursive dependencies, multiple versions of the same RPM, the same RPM with multiple architectures, and more. It does some of the same tasks as up2date and AutoUpdate.

breloc does binary edits on files to relocate compiled-in prefixes, padding with extra slashes to make up for differences in the length of the prefixes. In order for breloc to be most effective, a binary package should be configured with a prefix that has a lot of extra slashes at the end of it. beloc is distributed as part of the nsbd package, but it is also quite useful independently.

Depot is a software management tool providing a simple, yet flexible, mechanism for maintaining third party and locally developed software in large heterogeneous computing environments. Depot integrates separately maintained software packages, known as collections, into a common directory hierarchy consisting of a union of all the collections. This common directory is defined as the software environment. A set of configuration options manages interactions and intersections between collections in the environment. Depot facilitates the introduction, update, and removal of collections in a software environment. Custom environments and complete test environments can be easily created for individual machines or for sets of machines. Collections with unexpected problems can be replaced with previous versions or simply removed. Individual collections or files can be moved from remote filesystems to the local disks of workstations without the worry that the files may become stale. All this is achieved with minimal wasted disk space and administrative overhead.

epkg is a package manager which uses the Encap Package Management System, a method for flexibly handling installation and management of third-party software on a Unix system. Encap places each package in its own subdirectory, then automatically manages symlinks to their appropriate places in /usr/local. The Encap package format includes features like postinstall scripts and prerequisite checking. Other features include builtin tar/gzip extraction, optional builtin FTP and HTTP support, transaction logging, and the ability to automatically upgrade a package to the latest version.

The Fink project wants to bring the full world of Unix Open Source software to Darwin and Mac OS X. It modifies Unix software so that it compiles and runs on Mac OS X and makes it available for download as a coherent distribution. Fink uses Debian tools like dpkg and apt-get to provide powerful binary package management. You can choose whether you want to download precompiled binary packages or build everything from source.
